This quiet young man who offers her a room in his castle is anything but a beast.

It doesn't help matters that less than twenty-four hours after he's initiated as a dragon rider Princess Iraila is captured, forcing the King to send out these new dragon riders across Aerigethel in search for her. Iavin, Sayleth, and their two white dragons, Nemayn and Daeomin, venture to the frigid north where they stumble upon a mysterious boy named Cael whose hair is as equally white as Sayleth's. In a freezing world Iavin didn't even know existed, dark plots unfold, and Iavin learns the mysteries surrounding Cael and Sayleth are far deeper than he ever imagined, and the peaceful times of Aerigethel will all too soon be tainted with blood, death, and war.

Only if the regions come together, can Velnoroth be defeated. But with so much already lost, so many bonds broken, and the enemy almost in full reign, can the riders ever succeed in unifying the people?

But a few young dragon riders from the humble region of Sivral fight for something better.

  3. Christine--

    I recently stumbled over your review of The Moon Master's Ball, and was completely blown away by your kindness! You have encouraged me so very much by loving my characters almost as much as I do. And if you ever need a helpful pair of eyes to look over a draft of one of those (amazing sounding) books you're writing, shoot me an email at limwenclara17@gmail.com

    Are you thinking of entering the Five Magic Spindles competition? I am, and hope you are too! :)

    1. I may have just squealed a little bit that the author of The Moon Master's Ball came over here and left a sweet comment. Thank you so much!!! Yes, I loooved your story. I think about it all the time, it left such an impression on me.

      Oh my! THANK YOU. I'm always needing more beta readers, so I may have to take you up on that offer sometime. I cannot thank you enough for your kindness!

      Sadly, I'm not entering. I entered last year's and then enjoyed it so much I turned my entry into a full novel (and keep forgetting to list it over here, whoops). I was planning on doing it again this year, I had so much fun last time. But the timing just wasn't working out for me. Maybe next year!
      Best of luck on your entry! Your writing is so beautiful, I have no doubt it's going to be fantastic.

      Thank you so much for stopping by!

    1. Aaahhhh, thank you!!

      I had so much fun writing Fallen Matter. It was SO different from anything I've ever tried, but I think that's why it was fun. But it's a monstrous mess. One day I shall go back and rewrite that thing...

      My CoaDS series has been a many-year-long project. It's very special to me. It thrills me that it interests people.

      You have so encouraged me! It always blows me mind that people are actually interested in my silly writings. You're just too sweet. Thank you!!! <333

  5. Love looking through all your pretty writings, Christine! And I was wondering: how did you make the covers for these? They're gorgeous!

    1. Awww, thank you so much! I used to have an obsession with Photoshop but sadly I don't have access to it anymore. I think Pixlr.com is very Photoshop-y though but free, so I may try it sometime. Of course, I can't do anything with these covers. I just like making them for fun just 'cause. Hehe.

    1. Thank you!!! I am excited to hear you're interested in Burning Thorns! That's the one I'm currently revising and hope to start querying with. Or...trying. We'll see how it goes. :)

  7. O.O Querying? Wow, that must be really terrifying. But I'm all for it. :D Can't wait until you're published so I can read your writing! :)

    1. Honestly, I'm TERRIFIED of the idea. But my dream is to get published, so I guess I gotta shove down the fears and chase that dream. First though I have to edit and polish this thing to death to get it READY for querying. So...one step at a time? Heh.

      Thank you for the encouragement! I can't tell you how much I need it. <3

    2. Okay, so I just had to ask... will you perhaps be doing beta-reading rounds for one of your fabulous-looking stories? BECAUSE I WOULD TOTALLY SIGN UP. <3

      Delete
    3. Excuse me while I flail for a minute, because this just absolutely, totally, completely MADE. MY. DAY. It never ceases to blow my mind when people actually WANT to read my stories.

      Annnd...I'm actually beta-ing Burning Thorns at this very moment. I'm giving my beta-readers a new chapter as I edit it. We're at chapter 15 (out of 36) currently, but you are absolutely welcome to join the team! If you don't want to, that's perfectly fine! Trust me, I understand. But if you are interested feel free to email me at Lauriloth(at)gmail(dot)com.

    4. Oh, I'd love to do that! Unfortunately, life is just about to get hectic, so I'll have to pass. :/ But I can't wait to read your stories one day, Christine! They sound amazing! :D

    5. No problem whatsoever! I've actually had to turn down a ton of beta requests this year myself, because I just haven't had the time. So I absolutely understand!

    1. Oh goodness, thank you!! My problem is, I write a ton of first drafts and then just leave them in all their messiness, no editing. I've got to work on that.

      That's so exciting you're finishing up your first novel! :D The first novel is always so special.

  10. Another elf! ;) I just found your blog tonight and had to follow! Even though I'm not the biggest fantasy fan (not that I have a problem with it, it's just not my genre), your actual writing is good enough to pique my interest. I've always loved writing (started out by writing poetry from about the age of 6) and I'm looking forward to Nano too! Keep up the good work :)

      EEP. That is so nice of you to say! Like...AWK. So nice! I'm honored to have you over on my little corner of the internet. ^_^ I just love finding fellow writers. And you're doing NaNo? AWESOME!

      Thank you so much!

  11. Ack, you have written so many books!

    I loved reading this and getting to know the series you (EEEEP!!!) finishing this NaNo. I'm still fairly new around here, so some of it was new to me.

    I love how you managed to make each name color-related... The color of the dragons, right? Brilliant!

    1. NaNo helped a LOT with that! Lol. I produce books muuuch slower during non-NaNo months.

      Thanks so much! Your excitement is contagious! And yes, it's the color of the dragons. :D I'm so glad you like it!

    1. Aaaaahhhh! THAT MAKES ME SO HAPPY. Thank you!!!

      Well...none of them are published. Haha. And it'll probably be yeeeears down the road before ANY of them will be because I hope to traditionally publish. But your interest toward them pushes me forward to keep pursuing my dream. Thank you so much! ^_^

    2. You're welcome!!!
      OH!!! I wanna read Burning Thorns SO BAD!!! O-o
      *flails*
      I am in the middle of an unnamed fantasy (barely) narrated by a fourteen year old named Thomas. It involves strange fog, a kidnapped sister, islands, a boy named Pierce, weirdness, and extremely hard decisions. I have so many unfinished WIPs, and I'm THRILLED that one is actually GOING SOMEWHERE. xD
      I hope you get published soon!!!! <3

      Delete
    3. OOOOH. Your story sounds AWESOME!!!! Fantasy is my greatest love. I mean...obviously. XD But weirdness and hard decisions make for some of my FAVORITEST stories. Keep writing, this sounds amazing!

      Thank you so much. You are such an encouragement! <3

      Delete
    4. Thank you so VERY VERY much!!!! *flails* You are the BESTEST. I need ALL the encouragement i can get.
      Fiction is my love. My mum and I love it (though she is also into realistic fiction), but my sister isn't very into it. And my dad CAN'T STAND IT. *cries* I think I love it the most out of my fam. I always love the crazy, "aren't real" [rolls eyes] characters like Jewel the unicorn in The Last Battle (Narnia) or Smoug in the Hobbit. <3
      I usually write realistically (because... I don't know why), but I'm liking fiction more and more. <3

      Delete
    5. Have I been writing fiction this WHOLE TIME!?!?!?!?!? *cries* My soul, I meant FANTASY!!!!! *Gets her imaginary friend, Kevin, to slap her*

      Delete
    6. YESSSSS. GIMME ALL THE FANTASY!!!! That's sad not all your family members like it. :( My mom isn't really into fantasy, it's so sad. But the rest of my family loves it. And she'll put up with it some, it's just not really her thing.

      But I'm like you, I'm the one that loves it most out of everybody. I'm so obsessed! XD

      YESH. The magical creatures and such are the BEST. Jewel and Smaug are amazing. I think Smaug started my obsession with dragons. XD

      (Hey, I'm the Typo QUEEN. Don't worry a thing about it!)

    7. I know! It is the WORSTEST. *sobs* I can't seem to convert them. LOLZY! not lolzy. *cries more*

      Same! Once I watched the Hobbit, I became quite obsessive over the scaly creatures.

      And my cousin and I have loved unicorns since our BABY YEARS. O-o They're so noble and cute and MAGICAL! *glitter explosion*
      (LOLZY! Thanx!)

      Delete
    8. You never know, one day they may grow an appreciation for fantasy. Don't give up!

      Unicorns are amazing! Dragons will always be my top favorite fantasy creature, but still. UNICORNS ARE EPIC.
